Home away from home
This teensy bed and breakfast lies in the heart of one of Venice’s few remaining residential neighborhoods. With just three rooms, B&B San Marco is clearly more interested in catering a personal experience for each guest than in turning mega profits. The owners actually live upstairs from the third-floor rental property.
Being such a cozy, family-run sort of place, B&B San Marco is a bit slim on amenities. Rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. Two of the rooms share a bathroom, and the owners join guests for a freshly prepared breakfast each morning in the kitchen. The sparseness of typical hotel facilities is just what contributes to the B&B’s charm though.
Most convenient for attending the Biennale, the hotel’s location between San Marco and the Arsenale makes it a unique spot to explore Venice. Vaporetto stops are unfortunately a bit of a hike away, but if you like getting lost in the labyrinth of Venice’s alleys, this is the spot for you.
